In the wake of the Jeremy Durham audit, the Tennessee Senate approved a bill yesterday to put more restrictions on the investments legislators can make with campaign funds, Humphrey on the Hill reports. Sen. Doug Overbey, R-Maryville, introduced the bill that would require campaign funds to be deposited and maintained in a traditional bank account insured by the FDIC. The bill received near-unanimous support in the Senate, with Sen. Todd Gardenhire, R-Chattanooga, casting the only no vote.
